    With the acquisition of the new 2010 mini server, my old core solo (1.5GHz) mini is now going to be used as a minor desktop at home. A t7200 2.0GHz c2d goes for about 100USD. Is the money worth the upgraded performance?

    Depends on what you want to do, but I would say yes for sure.

    Hmmm...I just had an idea. If I upgrade to c2d, maybe it can be a node for my final cut studio. I wonder if I would have to upgrade to snow leopard from leopard to be a node? The new 2010 mini server final cut is installed on is running snow leopard server.
